About Larry Levine

My family and I have been in the real estate business for decades. My father owned his own Real Estate Company, and is now retired. I am licensed in Real Estate in California. When my father first visited The Whaler, he walked into an Open House and bought our lovely studio condo on the spot! We enjoy vacationing, and offering out our various properties to others around the world to enjoy as well!

Larry Levine purchased this condo in 1985

Why Larry Levine chose West Maui

The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach is a premier oceanfront location. Right in the middle of famed Kaanapali Beach, it's walking distance to just about anything you could ask for. The weather is great all year round, and the views are awesome. The ocean floor is smooth for swimming, and the people are friendly! And the ground floor location is so convenient!

What makes this condo unique

We have an oceanfront swimming pool and new spa, as well as oceanfront gas BBQ grills for your use. There is a weight room, sauna and a nail/massage spa on property, as well as tennis courts. It sits right across the street from the Royal Kaanapali Golf Course, and directly next door to Whaler's Village, a shopping area with restaurants, and even a free Whaling Museum. Snorkeling is just a simple 5 minute walk up the beach to Black Rock where you can find colorful fish, sea turtles, and even an eel! You can para-sail, jet-ski, go for a sunset dinner cruise right off the beach. A quick drive up the road will bring you into historic Lahaina Town!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This guest said they had a great time at our condo, his second visit. Loves the location next to Whaler's Village and the beautiful grounds at The Whaler. Said he hopes to come back every year.

Quiet,and friendly.Great location .

  • 4 of 5

Ideal location everything within reach. BBQ 's where great for socialising. We just loved our Condo. Larry you do need to throw out any thing in the food line that is left by other visitors, a bit of a health risk. Maybe even cull your utensils . Thankyou for the beach chairs,towels etc . Love the pool!!Definitly will return Cheers Wendy and Shane

Owner's Response: Hi W & S - Glad you took advantage of our oceanfront BBQ's ! Thanks for the compliments on the condo and the few extras we try to keep for guests' use. Typically the cleaning lady does throw everything in the fridge out after each guest, sorry if she didn't do it before your arrival. Some guests do appreciate items like Ketchup, Mayo, condiments, etc. so they don't have to buy it themselves. Either way, you're welcome back from Australia whenever you're returning!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Larry, for renting us your condo! Not only is the unit perfectly situated for an amazing ocean view, the Whaler location is the best in Kaanapali! #114 had everything we could possibly need. Look forward to coming back!

The Perfect Studio Condo with Excellent Views!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for having me at your wonderful studio condo at the Whaler! This was the perfect place for me to stay for the week. It had everything I needed, and more! The balcony views were stunning, and it was the most peaceful place to drink my morning cup of coffee. I would definitely stay here again!

Great location,beautiful view...BUT......

  • 1 of 5

This suite is located at Whalers, main floor great location. Once inside these were the things we noticed. Wallpaper peeling away from walls throughout the unit, carpet stained, bathroom dated and showerhead hard water scale build up,diswasher inside so much hard water scale we had to purchase dishwasher cleaner and use it 4 times to clean it,pillows were stained and flat,we purchased 2 pillows so we could get a good sleep, cuttlery has rust on it, lamp shade next to bed had disturbing stains, this unit is in need of an update, guest book on site has similar comments written in it from previous visitors. The location is amazing but after seeing the inside of other units at Whalers it was like the unit we stayed at was not at the same location. We will be going back to Maui next year but have already picked an other unit to stay at that has had all of the updates and is well looked after. If this suite had the updates that are desperatley needed it would be rented over and over again by return visitors. The less time spent in the suite the better so you have the opportunity to enjoy paradise. Worth spending the extra $100 to $200 a night to stay in an updated suite at this amazing location (Whalers) as we tried to avoid the amount of time spent in the suite except sleeping so we were not reminded how worn down our suite was compared to the other suites we veiwed. We will be returning to Maui again but would not rent this suite again unless it was completly updated.

Owner's Response: Mike I'm sorry that you found our unit not up to your Canadian standards. My unit is rented over and over again by repeat guests, who are quite happy with the unit and it's furnishings. You can see that with the many other reviews that are 4 or 5 stars. Also, thanks for pointing out that my unit is $100-$200 less per night than some of the other units at The Whaler. Not everybody has unlimited budgets, and my condo is consistently a great value in a great location. Hard water scale in the dishwasher? Seriously? I can't imagine why anybody would go to Maui and look deep inside a dishwasher instead of the spectacular vistas and sunsets right from our lanai.

Loud and Stole Security Deposit

  • 1 of 5

I always love Maui!! However, I won't be staying at the Whaler again through VRBO. I was kept up for two nights with a loud party on the lanai at the hotel next door. I called and complained on the second night. After two more calls the party stopped. On the third night at The Whaler we were warned that the power would be out from 12:00am to 5:00am for work on a generator. This I could handle. While I did wake up from the generator I was just about to go back to sleep, when an teeth rattling drilling/jack hammer noise started shaking the unit. I called front desk at 1:45 am and after about 15 minutes the noise stopped. In the morning I was told that there was a water leak and that maintenance had to drill in the basement below my unit. I was also told "this should have never happened." So was it emergent or not? Not sure...but it ruined our last day as we had a trip to Hana planned which I was now too sleep deprived to drive.

But because I love Maui, we made the best of it and chilled at beach and pool. The day before we had to leave the screen had come off it's hinges and was toppled over. It had been sort of loosely attached the entire weak...not flush with the sliding glass door but I wasn't very worried about it. I called front desk and got sent to a VM and left a message. No one came to fix it. Then when I returned home I got an email from VRBO saying that I was NOT going to get refunded my security deposit because maintenance had to put the screen back on?!! The screen wasn't damaged! Oh! and there was some bird poo on the carpet? We didn't leave any food out so if a bird got in there in the hour between when we left and house cleaning came, I wonder how much poo it could have left? Maybe if the screen was working it wouldn't have gotten in!!

I emailed the owner and talked to VRBO. No response. So my deposit is just gone. We left the unit clean, did the dishes before we left, etc. We are quiet, mellow travelers. Not rock stars by any stretch.

Needless to say...I won't be back to this unit and will not do VRBO ever again!! Jason at The Whaler gets props for being nice and courteous and giving us gift cards for the "drilling" incident. He was lovely and The Whaler as a whole has potential.

Owner's Response: The late night maintenance was an unfortunate situation that nobody could predict, however by your own admission you were (over) compensated for the 20 minute disruption by receiving $100 gift card to dine at Hula Grill. When you departed, the glass patio doors were left wide open allowing critters and birds to enter. The Hawaiian bedspread was wadded up and thrown on the closet floor with the beach chairs, boogie boards, and other sandy items. The Front Desk Manager indicated that you were out to get something for nothing, which you did by constant complaining. Sorry that 20 minutes of noise one night ruined your whole trip.

Love Maui

  • 5 of 5

We are active people love the boardwalk,beach,biking,swimming etc. We ride the public transportation and do not rent a car so a Condo is just right for the two of us! The grills are great for cooking and love the work out room. We dont like to be pampered the Whaler is a great get away for us!
